On Arundhati Roy's 'My Seditious Heart' While her novels evoke romance, longing, forbidden love, and class struggle, Arundhati Roy's nonfiction proves more incendiary, more seditious.

Rebelling Against the Rebellion: British Punk's Second Coming Louder, faster, angrier, and harder than punk ever sounded, second-wave punk in Britain kept the core instrumental ingredients but used and produced them in ways that boiled off any subtleties or sophistication.

The Greatest Alternative Singles of the '80s: Part 3: 60 - Higgs mentored the young Bob Marley and his trio in songwriting, arranging, and harmony singing, and in when Life of Contradiction was originally released Marley and company were completing their metamorphosis from a bouncy ska and rocksteady outfit into a serious and rootsy ensemble that would change the face of reggae music for good.
Higgs ' solo work has always been respected by reggae fans but has never garnered the commercial success it deserved. It's unlikely that this reissue will do much to change that -- it's much too clearly a product of its time -- but a solid core of listeners have been awaiting its release for years, and they won't be disappointed. Higgs is in excellent voice on every track, and the rhythms laid down by the Now Generation band are perfect examples of the churning, midtempo reggae sound that was in the ascendant in the early '70s.
Highlights include the brilliant "Got to Make a Way" and "Come on Home," and the bonus tracks the non-album single "Let Us Do Something" plus version sweeten the deal nicely.
The lyrics may get a little bit trite at times how's this for insight: "Life is an experience that only a fool could refuse" , but Higgs ' heart is so clearly right, his voice is so powerful, and the rhythms so sharp and dread, the occasional lyrical banality is easy to overlook.
